LoveR Kiss

LoveR Kiss will launch for PlayStation 4 and Switch on February 27, 2020 in Japan for 7,800 yen at retail and 7,255 yen via download, publisher Kadokawa Games announced.

A “Costume Deluxe Pack” edition of LoveR Kiss will also be available for 9,800 yen at retail and 9,073 yen via download, which includes new versions of 20 downloadable content costumes.

PlayStation 4 users who already own the original LoveR will also be able to upgrade to LoveR Kiss by purchasing the “Kiss Upgrade” add-on for 5,436 yen, which is due out about a month following the release of LoveR Kiss.

Pre-orders for any version of the game include the “School Swimsuit Set” downloadable content, which includes the “Normal School Swimsuit,” “Spats School Swimsuit,” and “Old School Swimsuit” costumes.

Here are the latest details about the game:

Updated Features

  • Himari Saiki Added as a Romantic Interest – In addition to the charming six girls illustrated by Taro Mino, the teacher Himari Saiki has been added as a romantic interest. Experience a love themed after a “love experiment” with an older woman who looks good with glasses.
  • Gyro Controls – By using the Switch as a camera and tilting the hardware, you can change the shooting angle and take photographs with a virtual feel. On PlayStation 4, tilting the DualShock 4 controller changes the shooting angle, and you can requests the girls to do poses through voice input. Whichever platform you choose, you can experience an immersive Photo Session.
  • Himari Added to Free Photo Sessions – Just like the other girls, you will be able to freely take photographs of Himari. The new “Chemistry Room” location has also been added.
  • Pair Photo Sessions – Through Pair Photo Sessions, you can take photographs of two girls at once. Choose actions like “cute pose” or “sexy pose,” adjust the girls’ positioning or direction, and take your own original photographs.
  • Weekday Underwear Changes – Through Weekday Underwear Changes, the girls will change their underwear each day of the week. For the weekend, their underwear takes on a somewhat sexier impression. (This feature is a Switch-only feature.)
